Culinary value of bay leaves is surpassed by overall beauty of this cultivar and its ease of care. Train multi-stemmed plants to form a small tree—one of the best for container culture—or shear dense, dark green foliage as a hedge or topiary. Provide good drainage and ample space to spread. For most gardens, this cultivar is more suitable than the much larger species.
